Elections Performance Index

See also: Pew Charitable Trusts' Elections Performance Index

Alaska ranked 19th out of the 50 states and District of Columbia in the Pew Charitable Trusts' Elections Performance Index (EPI), based on the 2012 elections. The EPI examines election administration performance and assigns an average percentage score based on 17 indicators of election performance. These indicators were chosen in order to determine both the convenience and integrity of these three phases of an election: registration, voting and counting. Alaska received an overall score of 67 percent.[1]
